The 18th edition was held on 21-23 of February 2024 at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel in Warsaw. The theme of the event was "Energy Optimization and Energy Saving on the Road to Industry 4.0." In the face of rapid industrial development, sustainable progress and rising energy costs, this topic has become crucial for the paint industry.

After a 4-year interruption, the event brought together 526 participants from 213 businesses.

The audience of paint materials and components included 213 people from 120 companies, which was highly appreciated by the exhibitors, for whom the presence of potential customers determines logthe success of the event.



An integral part of the event is the exhibitors' zone, which was joined by 56 companies offering the latest solutions and products.



Three days full of intensive discussions, presentations and exchange of experiences provided participants not only with new knowledge, but also with practical experience on how to optimize processes in industrial painting.
